Imaging Chemical Structures with ChemPhoto: WYSIWYG Drawing Settings

September 11, 2008

Depending on the audience and medium, chemical structures can be presented in a variety of styles. Chemical structure imaging applications should make it easy to visually and/or numerically arrive at the best appearance. ChemPhoto makes it easy to get exactly the right look for your structures through what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) drawing settings.

The screenshots below illustrate the three main categories of drawing settings in ChemPhoto: Atoms; Bonds; and Images. As each setting is manipulated, the entire view is updated in real-time to reflect the changes. A set of changes can be rolled back by pressing the "Cancel" button, making it easy to undo unwanted modifications.
